John Curran - FiveAA

 The energy in this handful of performers could power a nuclear reactor.

Cantina is like Cirque De Soleil but on speed!

The intimacy and freakish talent of all the performers draws you into a world of acrobatics, circus acts, singing, dancing, cabaret, magic and comedy that is over – sadly -  before you know it. Like a child, you cannot help slipping into this world  of entertainment. It is manic, it is beautiful, it is innocent but always maintains a sharp adult edge. The sheer physicality of the performance is stunning and it’s difficult to belief that these performers can pick themselves up, dust themselves off and be ready for another night.

Cantina is back by popular demand and it is no wonder.
